I told you all I would show you my recipe for the Leek Rice I make….I am warning you though, you PROBABLY won’t like this!! Seriously, unless your weird like me or are pregnant and crave strange things. ;-)  But I figured I’d at least let you in on the funky things I crave being pregnant.

“PIN IT” If you like it (by clicking the red button below)…

Pin It!

Here we go….


1 Leek (chopped) – this is sorta a kind of onion in my opinion and you only use the long stem part of it.

Tahini – found at the health food store, it tastes a lot like peanut butter and is good for ya!

Rice (I use 2-3 cups of uncooked rice)

Plain Greek Yogurt


1 – You need to soak the leek stems in a bowl of water because these have a TON of dirt in them and this is the best way to get the dirt out of all the crevices…I was going to post a picture of the dirtiness inside my leek but I didn’t want to gross you all out….this is a recipe for a meal after all.

2 – Finely chop the leek and put in your rice cooker over the rice and water.

3 –  After you cook the rice with the leeks, it will look like the above picture. Add as much Tahini (peanut butter taste) and greek yogurt as you’d like!

*I also LOVE to add a lot of parmesan cheese to this! Just the kind in the bottle.

On a side note – I am having something that you may think sounds better….grilled steak and a sweet potato! Here’s a fun tip though….In my sweet potato I use Plain Greek Yogurt instead of Sour cream and guess what?! It’s healthier for ya and tastes the same!

    Tahini is great! They sell it in a candy bar form in the farmers market for a buck so you can just much on it all day long.

    @ first leave the top part on the Leek when you rinse it. Just cut off bottom part, cut it length wise in 4. Now you can open the Leek and rinse all the sand out, after that just cut/chop it like you want. I even use the darker part of the leafs. I love LEEK
